LIVING WITH AN ADDICT

Living with an addict can be difficult, and codependency is a big factor that can fuel an addiction. The women’s site, Your Tango listed important factors to remember when you’re in a relationship with an addict:
“Addiction is not about you,” Dr. David Sack writes. “Guilt isn’t productive for anyone’s healing, but your involvement in their treatment and recovery can give [your partner] much needed strength and support.”

No one starts out using, hoping to become an addict. Dr. Sack writes, addiction
begins with the choice to take drugs or drink, “but that’s a choice many of us have made without becoming addicted.”
Even if your partner is ready to check in to a treatment center and get help, “The first goal of treatment is to help people find their own motivation to make the changes needed,” Dr. Sack writes. “The commitment to change is not an all-or-nothing process. The person will likely do a lot of bargaining with themselves and everyone else. If your loved one could just choose not to use, they wouldn’t need treatment.”

One of the most important points about living with an addict is that you can’t go through the recovery process for them. “Instead, help them want to help themselves… Don’t give up hope… Addiction can be terrifying, but it can also be overcome.”
